Three people were arrested by Beatrice police after anonymous reports of a party where minors were consuming alcohol.
Just after midnight Thursday morning Beatrice police were dispatched to the 600 block of North Ninth Street for a report that minors were drinking at the residence.
Upon arrival, police contacted two people on the back side of the house. When the officer attempted to contact the people, one of them, 19 year old Mariah M. Waters, started running west toward the front of the house.
Court documents state the officer was able to grab her arm, and she allegedly turned and hit the officer on the right side of his face. She continued to pull away as another officer assisted and placed her under arrest for third-degree assault on an officer, obstructing police, resisting arrest and minor in possession.
Court records state Waters had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. A breath test revealed an alcohol level of .115.
While officers were collecting breath samples from others involved, a man identified as Jack Dinneen, 19, of Exeter allegedly started running south. Police apprehended him in a back yard and was placed in handcuffs. He was arrested for minor in possession and obstructing a peace officer.
The last person of the 28 contacted was 19-year-old Samuel J. Zeleny. After telling police his first name, he allegedly ran south on Ninth Street. He was apprehended after a half-block pursuit and arrested for obstructing an officer and minor in possession.
